Interstate Batteries Provides Hurricane Readiness

September is height of hurricane season; preparedness is key

DALLAS, Sept. 18 // PRNewswire // -- According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), September is the most active month of the Atlantic and Pacific hurricane seasons. The experts from Interstate Batteries offer an incredible range of power solutions and knowledge to help homeowners, municipalities and businesses prepare for the season's storms.

Interstate All Battery Center (IABC), Interstate Batteries' team of retail battery experts, offers more than 16,000 battery and portable power solutions and suggests this list of tools to help individuals prepare for damaging weather:

  • Self-powered multi-purpose radio devices help with power outages, storm updates and back-up charging for cell phones.
  • A water resistant, hand-cranked flashlight gives continuous portable bright light for extended periods of time.
  • A waterproof, windproof lighter makes grilling easier when food defrosts due to power loss.
  • SLA (sealed lead-acid) batteries can power small devices like lamps and small coolers to prevent food from spoiling when there are power outages.
  • Solar panels are ideal for recharging batteries used as power alternatives during electrical outages.

"Being prepared is imperative, especially during hurricane season," said Gale Kimbrough, Interstate Batteries Technical Services Manager. "We've seen many storms in the 58 years Interstate Batteries has been doing business and we pride ourselves in helping our customers ride out the storms with our outrageously dependable products and power solutions."

When safety and performance are key, fire and rescue teams from across the county partner with Interstate Batteries to prepare for hurricanes and other severe weather. From batteries for two-way radios and airpacks to lighted traffic barricades and high water alarms, municipalities like Chicago and New York rely on Interstate Batteries to see their community safely through the storm.

Communication is critical during dangerous weather. Houston-based telecommunications companies partner with Interstate PowerCare for vital backup power to ensure smooth and uninterrupted communications during raging storms.

"Telecommunications disruptions and sustained power outages are two of the most common problems that cities face in the aftermath of a severe storm," said Terry Cummings, Interstate PowerCare Director of Operations. "At PowerCare we not only help prepare communities in advance from hurricanes and other storms, but also help restore damaged systems afterwards by providing backup generators to keep local cell sites and switching centers operational."
